Jesus, Lamb of God in the womb of Mary; spare us, 0 Lord.

Jesus, Holy Innocent in the womb of Mary; graciously hear us, 0 Lord.

Jesus, Son of God and Messiah in the womb of Mary; have mercy on us.

Let us pray:

Jesus, notwithstanding Your Divine Nature as Son of God, equal and one with the Father, You deigned to become incarnate as the Son of Man, assuming the condition of a pre-born child in the womb of Your Holy Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary. You, therefore, sanctified and elevated every maternal womb for all time and every person, whose life is begun at conception.

Jesus, manifest yourself in the hearts of Your people as the Eternal Son of God, whose earthly life began in the womb of a woman called Mary. You could have chosen to commence Your Messianic mission in another manner; however, You showed Your love for us by becoming a pre-born infant in the womb of Your Holy Mother. You took on the total human existence from conception to death. You consented to be carried in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary and then, after birth, saved us by Your suffering and death on the cross. From conception to death we live and have our being in You.

Jesus, we adore and thank You for choosing to become incarnate in the womb of Your mother, Mary. We beseech You to bless all mothers and intercede with the Holy Spirit and Your Father, that every infant in the womb receive Your precious gift of life.

Jesus, conceived in the womb of Mary, grant that Mary’s loving mantle overshadow these precious pre-born infants in the wombs of their mothers and assist in their birth. We ask this, Jesus, in Your name, who with the Father and Holy Spirit, lives and reigns forever. Amen.

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.
